If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared web hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one single location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
