Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin consoles, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified originally is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup websites.
