If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain name 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 authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
