Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain 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 typically includes digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantly, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS sites.
