If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the current email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
