If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
