If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address immediately. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, provided that their 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 owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain name straight away.
