If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from one location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP sign, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
