If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll need to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you’ve got a domain registered through us and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You won’t need to switch between different user interfaces, since you can administer all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all existing domain names the moment you sign in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s email, so in case the one that you specified originally isn’t valid any longer, you can modify it with a few clicks from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP button next to your domain names, provided that their TLD 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 ensure that only the owner of the domain name can see this info. In case the currently listed email is not valid any longer, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name straight away.
