If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a shared web hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different user interfaces, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantaneously. If you would like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only a click, in case you decide to transfer it to another company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting 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 available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
