If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.
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 obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the change will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
