If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP 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 nobody else can obtain it. You have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

If you’ve got a Linux cloud web hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP authentication code with no more than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll notice a small EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email instantly. In the very same section you can also see and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one mouse click, in case you decide to move it to a different registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain name. Of course, this button will be there only if the given gTLD or ccTLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS database isn’t a valid one. Since the change will take effect without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
