Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It 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 registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is extremely easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
