If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a website hosting account is stunningly easy. You won’t need to switch between different platforms, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one single place – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email momentarily. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this info. In case the currently entered email address is not valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name right away.
