Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from a single place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS websites.
