Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared web hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to switch between different platforms, as you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. In case you would like to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click, in case you decide to transfer it to another 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 on the EPP button, which will be to the right 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 one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
