If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with just a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If some extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without having to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the currently entered email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the particular extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can update the latter via the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS register is not a valid one. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
