Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin consoles, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can get this information. If the current email is not valid, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
