If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers 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 additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with a few clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
