In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email immediately. In case you would like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain 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 domain owner can get this info. If the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain straight away.
