Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another typically involves the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer procedure cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally comprises of digits and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated people from guessing it. Certain registrar companies even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email, 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
If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
