In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
