If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization 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 extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign to the right of your domain names, as long as their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. If the current email is not valid any longer, you can change it with several mouse clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
