If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin interfaces, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, as long as their 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 make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. In case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain right away.
