Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS websites.
