Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present 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 generally includes numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared website hosting account is very easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email immediately. If you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, as long as their 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 obtain this information. In case the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain straight away.
