Transferring a domain from one company to another commonly entails the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to impede unauthenticated individuals from guessing it. Some domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them periodically for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
