Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually comprises of digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them periodically for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address immediately. In the same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different tools. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
