If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can update the contact details, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently listed email is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to go through different tools. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
