Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is amazingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different systems, since you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you do not have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup websites.
