In case you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
