If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is extremely easy. You won’t need to switch between different interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you specified initially is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks from the same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can see this info. If the current email address is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain name straight away.
