If you would like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the present domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can get it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be reset regularly. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting plans, you have registered a domain name through our company and you’d like to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log into your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all generic and country-code domain name extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between companies. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also see and ultimately change the email, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can quickly get the transfer authentication code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you’d like to transfer it. This can be achieved through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to sign in and out of different admin consoles. All you will need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, provided that its TLD extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently entered is out of date, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
