Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared website hosting account is really easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the very same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several mouse 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 obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
