Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is extremely easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one and the same place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit 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 an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
