If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting
Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, since you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from one location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP icon, which will be situated next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email right away. If you’d like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with only a couple of clicks of the mouse.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantly, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
