If you wish to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, 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 name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a Linux shared website hosting packages, you’ve registered a domain with us and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email immediately. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
