In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP key, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.
