Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
