Transferring a domain name from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from breaking it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is really easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in a different section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS lookup websites.
