If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers 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 protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with only several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an autonomous section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be listed on WHOIS lookup sites.
