If you decide to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you will need to go through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain that you’ve registered through us with just several mouse clicks from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your cloud hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you will find all your domains neatly shown in alphabetical order. In case some extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button to the right of 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 needed, you can update the contact info, including the email address, without even leaving this section of the Control Panel, in case the currently listed email address is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to transfer it to a different registrar. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. As the change will take effect without any delays, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
