Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another usually entails the use of a special authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a security measure against unwanted transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain registrant and is issued by the current 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 generally includes numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting
account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a mouse click, if you decide to move it to another registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
