If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can update it with several mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
