In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email right away. In the same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can see this information. If the current email is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
