EPP Transfer Protection
Learn what EPP is actually, what it's employed for and why it’s so important for your domains.
Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP authentication code, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Certain domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting
account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server
account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that 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 in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
