If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect immediately, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup websites.
