If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, since you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email instantly. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.
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 obtain its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
