Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved 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 current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a Linux shared service, you have registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single click, if you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
