If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by various names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
