Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized people from cracking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the exact same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other company. 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 name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
