If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different platforms. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
