Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a shared web hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the same location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, 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 domain owner’s email instantly. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, if you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
