If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a unique 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 email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting 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 functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect instantaneously, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
