In case you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a special authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unsolicited 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 in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different user interfaces. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
