Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. 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 frequently contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the currently entered email address is no longer valid, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
