If you would like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to switch between different user interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names once you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you will notice a small EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different admin panels. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
