Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized people from guessing it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.

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 obtain the EPP transfer authentication code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. If the current address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name straight away.
