If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without having 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 have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. If the current email address is no longer valid, you can change it with several clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
