Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current 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 typically comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from guessing it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different admin interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
