If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP transfer code is extremely easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
