If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is surprisingly easy. You will not have to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified at first is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
