If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special transfer code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth-Info code, a domain password, and so on. All these names designate one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the current domain registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain transfer cannot be initiated and this is one of the safety mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin panels. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
