If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain 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 code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign on the right side of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the currently listed email isn’t valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
