Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically contains numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain period of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different tools. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with several clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
