In case you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without having 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 would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate immediately, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS web sites.
