Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between 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 name can get this info. If the currently listed email is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
