Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfer attempts 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 present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to switch between different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
