Transferring a domain name from one company to another ordinarily entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Some companies even change the codes of domains registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
