If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need a unique code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a Linux shared web hosting packages, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one click, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
