In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is stunningly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
