Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally contains numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them once in a while for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS sites.
