Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present 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 typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is very easy. You will not have to log in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different user interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
