If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, 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 name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button next to your domain names, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. In case the current address is not valid anymore, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
