If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current domain name registrar and gives 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 protection measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
