EPP Transfer Protection
What's an EPP code? What's its purpose? How important is it as far as domain name transfers are concerned?
If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting
account is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the same location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be located to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server
account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different systems. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
