If you wish to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is amazingly easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domain names and your hosting account from the same place – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP icon, which will be located to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’d like to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a separate section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will enable you to use separate functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP symbol, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will propagate instantaneously, so you don’t have to wait for the new email to appear on WHOIS lookup websites.
