If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is very easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just one mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
