Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not need to switch between different admin consoles, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one single location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
