If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, 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 on a regular basis. Some companies call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

In case you’ve got a Linux cloud hosting, you have registered a domain name through us and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with no more than several clicks. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domain names that you have registered through our company listed alphabetically. To the right of each domain, you’ll notice a mini EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In the very same section you can also find and eventually edit the email address, if the one there is not valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain name that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code really easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domains and your account. If you visit the Registered Domains section, you will notice an EPP sign next to your domain names, provided that their TLD extensions support transfers between domain name registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the owner of the domain can get this information. In case the current email address is not valid any longer, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP transfer code for the given domain right away.
