In case you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain owner obtains from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud packages, you have registered a domain name through our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon next to your domain names, 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 owner of the domain name can receive this information. In case the currently listed email is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name straight away.
