EPP Transfer Protection
Find out more info on EPP Transfer Protection and the way it protects a domain.
If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a website hosting
account is exceptionally easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different user interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the exact same place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
