In case you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is very easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP symbol, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
