If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different systems, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are displayed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will propagate instantly, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS lookup web sites.
