If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered with us with just several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP icon, which will be next to any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS lookup sites.
