Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every now and then for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. If the current address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
