EPP Transfer Protection
What's an EPP code? What exactly is its role? What importance does it have as far as domain name transfers are involved?
If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a shared web hosting
account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting 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 tiny EPP logo, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
