If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a shared website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is stunningly easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panel tools, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all active domains once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the given top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
