In case you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is very easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from a single location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. If you wish to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the given generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
