If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the current registrar and provides to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately update the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
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 name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. If the current address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
