If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with our company with just a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email isn’t valid anymore.
