Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special transfer 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 unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin panels, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different Control Panels. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
