If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you have a Linux hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like 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 systems. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
