Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued 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 typically comprises of digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from breaking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared website hosting plans, you have registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this info. If the current email isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain straight away.
