If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a shared web hosting service, you have registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
