If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers 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 protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed regularly. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through us under a cloud hosting account is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to switch between different admin dashboards, as you can manage both your domains and your hosting account from one single place – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply need to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP icon, which will be located on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email instantly. If you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a few clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it. This can be done through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different interfaces. All you have to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
