If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits 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 safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company shown alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also see and eventually modify the email, 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’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo to the right of your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain owner can obtain this information. If the current email address is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the respective domain straight away.
