Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin consoles. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
