If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a Linux cloud packages, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you wish to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will see a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email straight away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you only need to click on the EPP icon, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can edit this email address from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
