If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting plans, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup web sites.
