If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you’ve got a cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
