Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated people from cracking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. In case the current email address isn’t valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
