Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism 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 issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one and the same place – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the 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 obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
