If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present registrar and provides to the new one upon ordering. Without a valid code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For better security, the code contains digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to provide the new company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting, you have registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address right away. In the very same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different admin panels. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with a couple of clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
