If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered through our company with just a few clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo next to your domain names, 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 to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this information. In case the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain right away.
