If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not need to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domains through the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all active domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you specified at first is not valid anymore, you can change it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can easily obtain the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is out of date, you can update it with several clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
