If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a valid code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon next to your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. In case the currently entered email address is not valid, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain right away.
