Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one and the same place – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. 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 the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
