If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies 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 have a hosting, you have registered a domain through our company and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than a few clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also see and ultimately update the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
