If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain 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 additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. 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 Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is stunningly easy. You will not have to switch between different interfaces, as you can administer all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You will see all registered domains 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 see a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you specified initially is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be displayed in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you just need to click on the EPP sign, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect immediately, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be updated on WHOIS lookup web sites.
