If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code remarkably 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 will see an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
