If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include 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 additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a cloud web hosting account is stunningly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from the same place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP symbol, which will be located to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you want to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will manage both your account and your domains. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo next to your domains, on the condition 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 ensure that only the domain name owner can get this info. In case the currently listed address is not valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
