Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a unique domain authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer process cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites.
