If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is really easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
