If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain 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

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all active domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s mailbox, so if the one that you gave originally isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup sites.
