Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
