Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud web hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different tools, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from a single location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. If you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. If the current email address is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
