If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret 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 our company under a shared website hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not need to switch between different admin panels, since you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one location – our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP sign, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can see this info. In case the currently entered email is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
