If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization 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 correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is very easy. You will not need to switch between different interfaces, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from a single place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. In case you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect momentarily, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS sites.
