In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantly, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup sites.
