Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different systems. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
