Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them periodically for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is really easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
