Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from a single location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
