If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers 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 protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a cloud hosting account with us, getting its EPP code is unbelievably easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can manage all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domains as soon as you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you shared at first is no longer valid, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within a minute, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
