If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain through our company and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered through our company displayed alphabetically. To the right of each domain name, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all domain extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the registrant’s email instantaneously. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different admin interfaces. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click on the EPP button for the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is obsolete, you can update it with a couple of clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
