If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not 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 name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. In case the current email address is no longer valid, you can update it with a few clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain right away.
