Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar. 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 frequently includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain amount of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can see this information. In case the currently listed email isn’t valid, you can change it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
