If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux website hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email right away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP sign to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. If the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
