If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from a single location – our custom-built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. In case you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.
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 wish to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different interfaces. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
