Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different platforms, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the very same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be situated next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
