Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain authorization 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 protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared website hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all 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 registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
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 that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly 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 sign on the right side of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars 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 get this info. If the current address is no longer valid, you can update it with a few clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name straight away.
