If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud website hosting account is very easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer both your domains and your hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP symbol, which will be located next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email momentarily. In case you want to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
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 wish to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different platforms. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a couple of mouse clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
