Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is very easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS sites.
