If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can administer all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared originally is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
