Transferring a domain name from one company to another usually involves the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies call an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unsanctioned transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the present domain name 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 frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthorized people from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for even greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains once you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
