Transferring a domain from one company to another normally entails the use of a special domain name authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an AuthInfo code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfer attempts with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. It can be obtained only by the owner of the particular domain name and is issued by the current registrar. It must be given to the new domain name registrar company because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and ordinarily includes digits and special characters, so as to prevent unauthenticated persons from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even change the codes of domain names registered through them after a particular interval of time for even better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
