Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfers with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the current domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and commonly comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given interval of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
