Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain 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. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different platforms, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
