If you wish 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 unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you sign in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you specified initially is not valid any longer, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you would like to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a few clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
