If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is really easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different systems, as you can administer all your domain names via the very same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code stunningly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP logo on the right side of your domains, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can obtain this info. If the currently listed email isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain straight away.
