In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a domain registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
