If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers 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 safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is outdated, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
