If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is really easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS web sites.
