If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can change it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the currently entered email address is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
