If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. 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 Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not have to switch between different interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the same place – our in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In case you wish to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you would like 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 several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP sign, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS websites.
