If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with several clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different tools. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
