In case you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different user interfaces. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition 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registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
