If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need a unique domain authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authorization code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, and so on. All these names refer to one and the same thing – a code that the domain name owner gets from the present domain name registrar and provides to the new one during the order procedure. Without a valid code, a domain name transfer cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For greater security, the code contains numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you’d like to transfer one of your domains, you have 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 have registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address straight away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantly, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
