If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. 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 may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a shared website hosting account is really easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email straight away. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this info. If the current email address isn’t valid, you can update it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
