In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin panels. All you will 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, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
