If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication 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/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just several clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you will see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the current email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with only one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
