If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
In case you have a Linux website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email instantly. In the same section you can also find and ultimately update the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
