In case you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
