If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain. 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 you want, you can update the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin consoles. All you have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a few clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
