If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. 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 needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP symbol next to your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can get this info. If the current email is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few 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 code for the respective domain name right away.
