Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current 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 generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo next to your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can get this information. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
