In case you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
