If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you have to present the new domain name registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux website hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email address right away. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP button next to your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can receive this info. In case the currently listed address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
