If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through us with only a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different user interfaces. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with a few clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
