If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with our company with only a few mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between domain registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button to the right of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’d like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an autonomous section. Quick-access controls will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can update this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you don’t need to wait for the new email to be listed on WHOIS lookup sites.
