If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud service, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authorization code with less than several mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will see a small EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately modify the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you wish to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a different section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the EPP transfer code, you just need to click the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect straight away, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS web sites.
