Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared website hosting service, you have registered a domain name through our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the currently entered address is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name straight away.
