If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the current registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin dashboards, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified originally is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
