Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current domain name 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 comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin consoles, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one single location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different interfaces. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can edit it with several clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
