Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular 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 frequently comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud website hosting plans, you have registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button on the right side of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. If the current email isn’t valid, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
