EPP Transfer Protection
Learn what EPP is really, what it is utilized for and why it’s critical for your domain names.
Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP authorization code, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsolicited transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently includes digits and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated individuals from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a website hosting
account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is really easy. You will not have to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server
account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
