Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting packages, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
