Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present 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 traditionally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from guessing it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
