Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted 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 name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an independent section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS websites.
