In case you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS sites.
