If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include 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 security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting
You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you have registered through us with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
