If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be situated on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email immediately. In case you want to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol to the right of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain name owner can receive this info. In case the currently listed address isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks without having to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain right away.
