If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a few clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. 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 update the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you will not need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup websites.
