If you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, 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 regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with our company with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right 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 domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon to the right of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this info. In case the currently entered email is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
