If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names once you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
