Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Certain domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given period of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantly. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want 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 sign in and out of different platforms. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
