If you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer 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 better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a website hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the very same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button next to your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this info. If the currently listed address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name right away.
