If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides 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 safety measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to supply the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP icon on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this info. If the currently listed email address is no longer valid, you can update it with a few clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
