If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name 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 miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. 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 you wish, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you do not have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS websites.
