If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. 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 Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is very easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different systems. All you need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
