Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also see and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
