If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain 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 measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will 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 listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only a mouse click, if you decide to move it to another registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click 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 top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
