If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies 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 cloud hosting plans, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domain names that you have registered with our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code top-level domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you wish to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code surprisingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. In case the currently listed email address is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name straight away.
