Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another ordinarily entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and traditionally contains digits and special symbols, so as to impede unauthenticated persons from breaking it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a web hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the very same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can get this information. In case the currently entered address is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
