Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization 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. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different interfaces, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared originally isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. If the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
