If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a Linux shared packages, you have registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click, if you decide to move it to another registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the given domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
