Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from cracking it. Certain registrar companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup sites.
