If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different tools, since you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names as soon as you sign in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
