If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all active domains as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email account, so if the one that you shared originally is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an independent section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect immediately, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS websites.
