If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, if you decide to move it to another registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
