Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current domain name 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 ordinarily includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting service, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown alphabetically. Next to 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 on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, if you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to achieve 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 on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
