If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting, you have registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a few clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In the same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP sign, 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 domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantly, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS sites.
