If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization 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 account and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting service, you’ve registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually change the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code amazingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this info. If the currently entered email address is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of mouse clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
