If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux shared hosting service, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email address right away. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP icon, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect right away, so you will not have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
