Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name 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. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given 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 procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily contains numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthorized individuals from cracking it. Some registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain interval of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
