If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.
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 obtain its EPP transfer code with just a click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
