If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is no longer valid.
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 obtain the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. In case the current address isn’t valid, you can update it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
