Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from a single place – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address right away. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this info. In case the current address isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
