If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass 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 emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a web hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panel tools, since you can manage both your domain names and your web hosting account from one single location – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In case you wish to change the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.
