If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. 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 information, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with several clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
