In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this info. In case the currently listed email is not valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
