Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud service, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several 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 with our company shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
