Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate immediately, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
