Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in an independent section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS websites.
