If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars 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 through us with only several clicks from the 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 domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
