If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address instantly. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
