If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers 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 security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is remarkably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one and the same place – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
