In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different platforms. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
