Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting plans, you have registered a domain with us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
