Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the current 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 commonly includes digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you have a domain registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small 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, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can get this info. In case the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
