If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain 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 registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different user interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
