If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS websites.
