Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized people from breaking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud web hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different Control Panel tools. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is outdated, you can update it with several clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
