If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with just a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. If the currently listed email is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
