If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
In case you’ve got a hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup sites.
