If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is stunningly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code right after that.
