Transferring a domain name from one company to another typically involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is provided by the present 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 commonly comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from guessing it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is stunningly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from one single place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with several clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
