If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include 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 security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is astonishingly easy. You will not need to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different Control Panel tools. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with a few clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
