If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with several clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
