In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need a special domain name authorization code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authorization code, an Auth code, a domain name password, and so on. All these names denote the very same thing – a code that the domain name owner receives from the present domain 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 unauthorized transfers used with all gTLD and with most ccTLD extensions. For even better security, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the right code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
