If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting service, you have registered a domain name through our company and you wish to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company displayed in alphabetical order. Next to each domain, you will notice a small EPP icon for all extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain owner’s email instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you’ve registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code exceptionally easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP icon on the right side of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to make sure that only the domain name owner can obtain this information. In case the current email address isn’t valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without having to leave this Control Panel section. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP transfer code for the specific domain name right away.
