If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only several clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can update the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domain names. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP button next to your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the domain name owner can see this info. In case the currently listed email is not valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the particular domain straight away.
