If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is really easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different interfaces, 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 existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email account, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS websites.
