If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect straight away, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS websites.
