In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting plans, you have registered a domain with us and you wish to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit 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 there only if the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
