Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present 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 contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to 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 want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
