EPP Transfer Protection
Learn what EPP is, what it is employed for and why it’s so essential for your domains.
In case you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting
account is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from one place – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. If you would like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server
account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate immediately, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS websites.
