If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and nobody else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset 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 Web Hosting
Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud web hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, since you can manage both your domains and your shared web hosting account from one location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP sign, which will be located to the right of each domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. If you wish to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of clicks.
EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different Control Panel tools. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can change it with several clicks without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
