Transferring a domain name 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 code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater 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 authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this information. If the current email address isn’t valid, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
