If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, 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 altered regularly. Certain companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not have to switch between different platforms, as you can manage both your domains and your web hosting account from one location – our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP logo, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email momentarily. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code unbelievably easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP button next to your domains, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. In case the currently listed email address isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain right away.
