Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually includes digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the same location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email right away. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
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 want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different platforms. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
