Transferring a domain name from one registrar company to another normally involves the use of a unique transfer authorization code, which different companies refer to as an EPP key, a domain name password or an Auth-Info code. This code can be used as a safety measure against unauthorized transfers with all generic and with most country-code extensions. It can be obtained only by the domain owner and is provided by the present registrar. It must be given to the new registrar because the transfer cannot be initiated without it. The code is case-sensitive and often contains numbers and special symbols, so as to prevent unauthenticated people from deciphering it. Some domain name registrars even reset the codes of domain names registered through them after a given amount of time for better safety.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin panels. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
