Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically includes digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different systems. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
