If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a website hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS sites.
