If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will 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 see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can update the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one click, in case you decide to move it to some other company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
