If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different Control Panels. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
