In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux web hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
