If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with our company with only a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. 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 modify the contact information, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current 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 obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
