Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified originally is no longer valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different systems. All you will 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 want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a few clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
