Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the very same location – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
