If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through our company with only several clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

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 just one single click, in case you decide to move it to another domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be there only if the particular generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
