EPP Transfer Protection
Learn what EPP really is, what it is used for and why it’s so important for your domains.
In case you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting
account is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server
account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS sites.
