If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization 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 additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only one click, in case you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the particular generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
