Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another normally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a security measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the given domain name and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and normally comprises of digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized people from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them every once in a while for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is very easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email address, so if the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin consoles. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
