If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP sign next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the current address is not valid, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
