If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one single location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantly. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain can get this info. In case the currently entered email isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain name straight away.
