If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the code to the registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

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 that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the currently listed address is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
