Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud website hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to switch between different platforms, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be located to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo to the right of your domains, on the condition 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 make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the current address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
