Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from breaking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from the very same place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
