In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security mechanisms against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domains, you need to provide the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is stunningly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different platforms, since you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave originally isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup websites.
