Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the current registrar. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized individuals from hijacking it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a website hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the very same location – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In case you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
