If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through several 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 owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different tools, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be situated next to each domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address instantaneously. In case you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one mouse click, if you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – if the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
