If you want to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is remarkably easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email address, so in case the one that you specified initially isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
