If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domain names neatly displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP code, you’ll notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If you want, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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 only one single mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be there only if the given generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can change the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. Since the update will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
