Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique 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 security measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified initially is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP sign next to your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. If the currently entered email is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
