If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email right away. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to another registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
