In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a special authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unwanted transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. In the same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button next to your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. In case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
