If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.
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 decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different 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 want to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a few clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
