If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with no more than a few clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different Control Panel tools. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with a couple of clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
