If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is really easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in an independent section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
