If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
