If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not 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 commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is incredibly easy. You will not need to switch between different interfaces, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one single place – our custom Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the tiny EPP symbol, which will be situated to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email straight away. If you wish to change the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are listed in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access buttons will enable you to use different features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will propagate immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS sites.
