If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address isn’t valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different tools. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such 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to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a few clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
