Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. 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 normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. In case you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different systems. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
