Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this information. If the currently listed email address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
