If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from the same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. If you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
