If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to start the transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some companies call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with only a couple of clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domain names conveniently listed in alphabetical order. If some 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 on that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can edit the contact details, including the email, without even leaving this Control Panel section, in case the currently listed email is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you would like to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be shown in an autonomous Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate immediately, so you will not need to wait for the new email to be published on WHOIS sites.
