In case you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique transfer code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate the same thing – a code that the domain owner receives from the present registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without an authentic code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the protection measures against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even greater security, the code comprises of 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 supply the new domain name registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you gave originally is not valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the currently entered email is no longer valid, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
