Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a special domain name 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 unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD 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 procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email instantaneously. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. If the currently listed address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
