If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you have a web hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. If the currently listed address is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
