Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another generally involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the specific domain name 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 ordinarily contains numbers and special symbols, so as to impede unauthorized persons from cracking it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domain names registered through them after a given interval of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared hosting account is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one place – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites.
