Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
