If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is really easy. You will not have to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
