If you decide to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered with us with only a couple of mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case 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 will administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon on the right side of your domains, on the condition that their extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain name can receive this info. In case the currently listed email address isn’t valid anymore, you can change it with a few clicks without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain name right away.
