In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with only several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different interfaces. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with several clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
