If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need a unique authorization code, which may be referred to by various names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names refer to the exact same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the current domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unauthorized transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better security, the code comprises of digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domains, you need to present the new registrar company with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us shown in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
