If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
If you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is extremely easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domains once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different user interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
