Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the current domain 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 normally includes digits and special characters, so as to obstruct unauthorized people from cracking it. Certain companies even reset the codes of domain names registered through them from time to time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from the very same location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
