If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need a special transfer authorization code, which may be called by different names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, etc. All these names denote the exact same thing – a code that the domain name registrant obtains from the current domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without a genuine code, a domain name transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the security measures against unapproved transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For greater security, the code includes numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so in case you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you need to supply the new registrar company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
