Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain period of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is really easy. You will not need to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get 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 specified initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse 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 us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
