If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can see this info. In case the current address is no longer valid, you can update it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
