If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your hosting account from one single location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. If you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS web sites.
