Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
