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

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a domain name registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred away, you will see a small EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified originally is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code remarkably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this info. If the currently listed email is not valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks without leaving this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name straight away.
