In case you’d like 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 name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have to supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting account is extremely easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from a single place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name 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 domain owner can receive this information. If the currently entered address is not valid anymore, you can change it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
