If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address 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 start the domain name transfer. 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 extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting account is very easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the very same place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address immediately. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
