Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another typically entails the use of a special domain name 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 safety mechanism against unwanted transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain and is issued by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer process cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally includes numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized individuals from deciphering it. Some registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a given period of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a website hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different platforms. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
