In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would 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 Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS websites.
