If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is really easy. You won’t have to switch between different user interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from the very same place – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can see this information. If the current email address is not valid, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
