If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.
EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting
If you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting packages, you have registered a domain name through us and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will notice a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can swiftly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to switch between different user interfaces. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is obsolete, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
