EPP Transfer Protection
What's an EPP code? What's its function? How important is it as far as domain name transfers are concerned?
If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers 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 code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting
account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. In case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
