EPP Transfer Protection
What's an EPP code? What exactly is its purpose? How important is it as far as domain name transfers are involved?
In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting
account is amazingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from a single location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email right away. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server
account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP icon next to your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can see this information. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
