If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a couple of clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can modify the contact details, including the email, without having to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another domain registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting 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 generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within one minute, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
