If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is amazingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one place – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email immediately. If you want to modify the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, as long as its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
