If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
