Transferring a domain name from one company to another normally entails the use of a special transfer code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety 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 specific domain and is issued by the current domain registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special symbols, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from guessing it. Certain companies even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular period of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux web hosting, you have registered a domain name with us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. In case the currently entered email is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name straight away.
