If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need 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
If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate right away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS sites.
