If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, 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 name may be changed regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain through us and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also find and eventually change the email, if the one there is no longer valid.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different user interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
