If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just several mouse clicks from the 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 listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP button to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. In case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name right away.
