If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Certain companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panel tools, since you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all active domains once you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave at first isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon next to your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this information. In case the currently listed address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
