If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will have to pass through several safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain 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 obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to start the transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is astonishingly easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin panels, since you can administer all your domains via the exact same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names as soon as you sign in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a small EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name registrant’s email, so if the one that you shared initially is not valid anymore, you can modify it with several clicks from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you have registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see an EPP logo to the right of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can receive this information. If the current email is no longer valid, you can update it with a couple of clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain straight away.
