Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button next to your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. If the currently listed email address is not valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name straight away.
