Transferring a domain from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different tools. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
