Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly involves the use of a special authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the present registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from hijacking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with only a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain 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 user interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with several clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
