Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized 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 registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater safety.

In case you’ve got a cloud hosting packages, you have registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email right away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different systems. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
