In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different systems, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer 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 won’t have to go through different tools. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
