Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
