If you would like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security procedures. 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 no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you’ve got a cloud website hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain with us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered through our company shown in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address straight away. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is outdated, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
