If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with us listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you won’t have to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
