Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. In the same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
