Transferring a domain from one company to another ordinarily involves the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies call an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a protection mechanism against unwanted transfer attempts with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the domain name registrant and is provided by the present domain name registrar company. It must be given to the new domain registrar company because the transfer cannot be started without it. The code is case-sensitive and typically comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to hinder unauthenticated people from breaking it. Certain domain registrars even change the codes of domains registered through them from time to time for greater safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid anymore.
