If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
