EPP Transfer Protection
Learn what EPP is actually, what it is utilized for and why it’s critical for your domains.
In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting
account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server
account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the given top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
