If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present 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’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names neatly shown in alphabetical order. If a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button next to the given domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you wish, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the current email isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP icon next to your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the owner of the domain name can see this information. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the respective domain straight away.
