Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized people from breaking it. Certain domain 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 Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux website hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon next to your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. If the current address is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
