If you want to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through us listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different user interfaces. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
