In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email address 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 our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
