Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them periodically for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same place – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In case you want to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate immediately, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup websites.
