In case you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS websites.
