Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current 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 commonly includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP symbol on the right side of your domains, 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 to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this info. In case the current email address is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
