If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an independent section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
