If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate instantaneously, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS sites.
