If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers 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 security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is incredibly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names once you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

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 stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP icon to the right of your domains, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can get this information. In case the current email isn’t valid anymore, you can edit it with a few mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
