If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with just several clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can quickly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to switch between different tools. All you need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently entered is outdated, you can update it with a few clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
