In case you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need a special code, which may be referred to by multiple names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain registrant gets from the current registrar and gives to the new one during the order procedure. Without a genuine code, a transfer process cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsanctioned transfers used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even greater safety, the code contains numbers and/or special symbols and is case-sensitive, so if you wish to transfer one of your domain names, you have to supply the new company with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different user interfaces. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
