In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a hosting plans, you have registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. If the currently entered address is not valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain straight away.
