In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email right away. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. If the currently listed address is not valid, you can change it with a few clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name right away.
