If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the same location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be situated next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address immediately. If you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different admin panels. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with several clicks without having to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
