In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, 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 have to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email instantly. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this info. In case the currently listed email address isn’t valid, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain right away.
