In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you’ve got a shared web hosting service, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and eventually update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you only need to click on 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 owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
