Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit 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 code with only a click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to 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 given extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
