Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from breaking it. Some companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different tools, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from a single place – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantly. If you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a different section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS sites.
