If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate straight away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
