If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the 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 extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is very easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different interfaces. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its 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domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
