If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting, you have registered a domain through us and you would like to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through us shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually update the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can change this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you do not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS sites.
