If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’d like to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just need to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you don’t need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS web sites.
