If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include 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 extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different admin consoles, since you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the exact same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t valid. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
