If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be called by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not have to switch between different platforms, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with several clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
