If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authorization 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 additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button next to your domain names, 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 to make sure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. If the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
