If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting account is unbelievably easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from one location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, 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 registrant’s email immediately. If you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can receive this information. In case the currently entered email is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
