In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from a single place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantaneously. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click, if you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
