If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters 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 changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with our company with just a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only need to click the EPP logo, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can edit this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate right away, so you do not need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS lookup web sites.
