Transferring a domain from one company to another usually involves the use of a unique transfer code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is provided by the present registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and usually contains digits and special symbols, so as to obstruct unauthenticated persons from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a Linux shared website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS web sites.
