If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits 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 extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only have to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate right away, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be shown on WHOIS lookup web sites.
