If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need a unique domain authorization code, which may be called by various names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth-Info code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote one and the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant receives from the current domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a transfer procedure cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For even better safety, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you want to transfer one of your domains, you have to provide the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not need to switch between different tools, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you will have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with several clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
