In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
