If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only a few clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. If the currently entered address isn’t valid, you can edit it with a few clicks without leaving this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
