If you wish to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with only a couple of clicks from the exact 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 will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button next to 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. If you want, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go 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 given domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
