In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different admin consoles. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
