In case you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need a special code, which may be referred to by many names – an EPP authentication code, an AuthInfo code, a domain password, etc. All these names designate the exact same thing – a code that the domain registrant obtains from the present domain registrar and gives to the new one upon ordering. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer procedure cannot be initiated and this is one of the protection mechanisms against unsolicited transfers used with all generic and with most country-code extensions. For better safety, the code includes numbers and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so if you’d like to transfer one of your domain names, you need to present the new registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared hosting packages, you have registered a domain name with our company and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
