If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security measures against unwanted transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a small EPP icon for all extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
