If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, 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 present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared web hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, since you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one single place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email straight away. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can see this info. If the currently entered address is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
