If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP key, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.
