Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another commonly involves the use of a special transfer code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a safety mechanism against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and generally contains digits and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthorized persons from deciphering it. Some registrars even reset the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that 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 modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
