If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered through our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
