Transferring a domain name from one company to another generally entails the use of a special domain authorization code, which different registrar companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a security measure against unapproved transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain and is provided by the current registrar. 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 frequently contains digits and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from cracking it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a certain interval of time for even better security.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from a single place – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this info. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
