In case you want 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 denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated 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 if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain with our company and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
