If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one at the time of the order. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain. 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 wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
