If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed 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, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one single click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t a valid one. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
