If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t 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 commas or dots, 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 name may be reset regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting service, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain owner’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP logo, which will be next to any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup web sites.
