Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different Control Panels. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
