Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails 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 unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the current domain 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 generally contains digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthorized people from guessing it. Certain registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
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 decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
