Transferring a domain from one company to another typically 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 code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP icon next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this info. In case the currently listed email is not valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
