Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated people from cracking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks from the same section.
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 get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click, if you decide to transfer it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
