Transferring a domain 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 name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you have a Linux hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
