Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant 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 often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different tools. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with several clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
