In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS web sites.
