If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
