If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can receive this info. If the currently listed address is not valid any longer, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
