If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a special code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through us with only several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of 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 domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
