If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service, you have registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol next to your domains, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this information. If the current email address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain straight away.
