If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. If the currently entered address isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
