If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to pass through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud plans, you’ve registered a domain name with us and you want to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than several clicks of the mouse. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address straight away. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually edit the email, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different features. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect right away, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS sites.
