If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting packages, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide 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 switch between different admin consoles. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that 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to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
