If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same place – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
