If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they will not be able to start the transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is surprisingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin consoles, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the exact same place – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP logo, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. If you would like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with just a click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to some other company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the particular TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
