If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a unique domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain name registrant gets from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without a valid code, a transfer cannot be started and this is one of the safety measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better safety, the code comprises of digits and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a website hosting plans, you have registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
