In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
