If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers 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 authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can update the contact information, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, if you decide to move it to a different company. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
