Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from deciphering it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. If the current address is no longer valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name straight away.
