Transferring a domain from one company to another typically entails the use of a special transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsolicited transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to hinder unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them every once in a while for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email address, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
