Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup web sites.
