If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux shared packages, you have registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the registrant’s email straight away. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
