In case you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need a unique transfer authorization code, which may be referred to by different names – an EPP authentication code, an Auth code, a domain password, etc. All these names refer to the same thing – a code that the domain registrant receives from the present registrar and provides to the new one during the order process. Without an authentic code, a domain transfer process cannot be started and this is one of the security mechanisms against unapproved transfer attempts used with all generic and with most country-specific extensions. For even better security, the code includes digits and/or special characters and is case-sensitive, so in case you would like to transfer one of your domain names, you have to present the new domain registrar with the correct code.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is stunningly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from one single place – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin panels. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
