Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click 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 details, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect straight away, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS websites.
