If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to pass 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 have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with our company with just several clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different platforms. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with a couple of clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
