If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name 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 Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is extremely easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin consoles, as you can manage all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you gave originally is not valid anymore, you can edit it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
