In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the very 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 register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one single click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
