Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized people from cracking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. In case the currently entered email is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name right away.
