If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a shared website hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email straight away. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different interfaces. All you need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like 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to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with a few clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
