Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated individuals from hijacking it. Some domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux website hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
