Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally includes numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to 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 there only if the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
