If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. 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 owner's email address and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a shared hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one single place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email straight away. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS web sites.
