Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned 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 current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from guessing it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate instantly, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS sites.
