If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t need to switch between different tools, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can change it with several clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are shown in a separate section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup websites.
