If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the 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 miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

If you have a Linux website hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate immediately, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS lookup websites.
