If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
