Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud service, you’ve registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
