If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different Control Panel tools. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
