If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters 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 name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain 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 that you’ve registered with us with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email is not 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 obtain its EPP transfer code with just a click, in case you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the specific TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain owner’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
