In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different systems, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
