Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is provided by the present 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 usually contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different interfaces. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
