If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication 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 & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You will not need to switch between different interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.
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’d like to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different systems. 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’d like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
