In case you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective 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 update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
