Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one single place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. In case the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name straight away.
