In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets 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 mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud plans, you have registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to 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. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
