Transferring a domain from one company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
