Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present domain 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 commonly contains numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Certain registrar companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different systems. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can edit it with a few clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
