If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a shared hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
