If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current 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 obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through us and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can easily get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can edit it with a few clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
