If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies 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 cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company listed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
