If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer process. 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 & paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, since you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in a separate Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can update this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be published on WHOIS sites.
