If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a Linux cloud web hosting, you have registered a domain name through our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authorization code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all gTLD and ccTLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately edit the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code incredibly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will see an EPP symbol next to your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can get this information. If the currently listed address isn’t valid, you can change it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain straight away.
