Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can receive this information. If the currently entered address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
