If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as 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 astonishingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different platforms, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from the same location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In case you want to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
