Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting services, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only a mouse click, if you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
