Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
