In case you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present domain registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater safety, the code contains digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different tools, since you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
