If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll see a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with several clicks of the mouse from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can quickly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different systems. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with several clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
