In case you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain name password, etc. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unauthorized transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting, you’ve registered a domain through us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
