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 procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud plans, you have registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you’ve registered through our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In the same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantly, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup web sites.
