If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unwanted 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 in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email account, so if the one that you specified at first isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
