If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is extremely easy. You will not need to switch between different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one single place – our custom-built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email immediately. If you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.
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 us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
