If you want 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 authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the very same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is extremely easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domains once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this info. If the currently listed email address is not valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
