Transferring a domain from one company to another traditionally involves the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them every now and then for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different admin interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
