If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars 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 domain registered through us and you have a cloud hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is remarkably easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your web hosting account. You will see all existing domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred, you will notice a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email, so if the one that you specified at first isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with a few clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with just one click of the mouse, in case you decide to transfer it to a different domain name registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain name. Of course, this button will be available only if the given generic or country-code domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter via the same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS archives is not valid. As the change will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
