Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned 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 current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them once in a while for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting packages, you have registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. If the currently listed address isn’t valid, you can update it with a few clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
