Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. 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 usually includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from cracking it. Some registrar companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email right away. In the same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
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’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such 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to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
