If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
