If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be called by many names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the very same thing – a code that the domain owner gets from the present domain name registrar and gives to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unsanctioned transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you want to transfer one of your domain names, you need to provide the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a cloud web hosting service, you’ve registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the registrant’s email right away. In the same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different platforms. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with a few clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
