If you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols 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 authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a shared web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is astonishingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks from the exact same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click, in case you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
