If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email 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 start 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 correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can get this information. If the current email address is no longer valid, you can modify it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
