Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
