If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you have registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If needed, you can modify the contact details, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from our company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the exact same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to show up on WHOIS lookup web sites.
