If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with just a few mouse clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
