If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through several safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is incredibly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all active domains the moment you sign in and next to the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you specified at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in an independent section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will permit you to use different features. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will take effect instantly, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup sites.
