If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is stunningly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you specified initially is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
