Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can receive this info. In case the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
