Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name 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 often comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you have a web hosting plans, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to 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 particular TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
