If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect immediately, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS websites.
