If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the currently entered email isn’t valid, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name straight away.
