Transferring a domain from one company to another usually entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily comprises of digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized people from breaking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few 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’ve registered with us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
