If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS web sites.
