If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a shared hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to switch between different tools, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address straight away. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different systems. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
