If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name 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 password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar company with the right code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very 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 get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, if you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
