Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally involves the use of a special transfer code, which different companies refer to as 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 gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
