If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can see this information. In case the currently listed email is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
