Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. 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 characters, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with us with just several clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
