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 Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is issued by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly includes numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared service, you have registered a domain name through our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin panels. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
