If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP key, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address immediately. In the same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
