If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through several security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you have registered through our company with only a few clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to manage your cloud web hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains conveniently displayed in alphabetical order. If a particular extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you wish, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

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