If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different tools, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
