In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP sign next to your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name 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 name can obtain this information. In case the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain name straight away.
