If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. If the currently entered email address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
