If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting plans, you have registered a domain name with us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately 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 that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup websites.
