In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you gave originally isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very 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 transfer code immediately after that.
