Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them periodically for even better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud plans, you have registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different Control Panels. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
