If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from a single location – our custom Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In case you would like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to go through different systems. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
