If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered with us with only a couple of clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain name in question. If you want, you can modify the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the currently listed email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to log in and out of different tools. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you would like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email address listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
