If you decide to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is extremely easy. You will not have to log in and out of different user interfaces, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find 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 owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks from the very same section.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can swiftly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different interfaces. All you have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can change it with a few mouse clicks without needing to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
