If you want to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud web hosting packages, you have registered a domain name through us and you would like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP transfer code with less than several clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered with our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email immediately. In the very same section you can also see and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you would like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your account and your domains. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP sign next to your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the current email isn’t valid, you can update it with a few clicks without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
