Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current domain 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 frequently comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to switch between different tools, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini 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 shared originally isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular domain 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 account associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
