If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner obtains from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For better security, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux web hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address 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 In the same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.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 Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS websites.
