If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email straight away. In the same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
