If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you have registered with us with only a few clicks of the mouse from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a certain extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different admin interfaces. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with several clicks without the need to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
