Transferring a domain name from one company to another traditionally entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unsanctioned transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain name owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and often includes digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthorized persons from breaking it. Some companies even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a certain amount of time for greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a shared web hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from a single location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email immediately. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect immediately, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS sites.
