If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if 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 Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate straight away, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup web sites.
