If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
