If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just a few mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case a certain TLD extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button to the right of the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain. If needed, you can edit the contact info, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar company, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names are displayed in an autonomous section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you simply need to click on 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 email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will propagate momentarily, so you don’t have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS websites.
