Transferring a domain from one registrar company to another traditionally involves the use of a unique authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain password or an Auth code. This code can be used as a protection measure against unapproved transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. The code can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is provided by the current 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 frequently comprises of numbers and special characters, so as to stop unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Certain domain registrars even alter the codes of domains registered through them after a particular amount of time for even greater security.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish 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 several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
