In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting service, you have registered a domain through us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can get this info. If the current email isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
