If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP 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 and nobody else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered through us with only several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this information. If the currently listed email isn’t valid, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
