Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is really easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS sites.
