Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the present domain 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 commonly includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon next to your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. If the currently listed email address isn’t valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
