If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain 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 extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is very easy. You will not need to switch between different systems, as you can manage all your domains through the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the registrant’s email address, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels. All you will have to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system emails all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email address listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can update it with several mouse clicks without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
