Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for better security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different platforms. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
