Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently comprises of digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from hijacking it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is really easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different platforms. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
