Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized people from cracking it. Some domain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only several mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
