If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared hosting packages, you have registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address immediately. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup websites.
