Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a cloud web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different systems. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
