Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia 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 name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
