If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domain names through the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you gave at first is no longer valid, you can change it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
