If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with just several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your shared web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.
