If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can see it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Certain registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is stunningly easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer all your domain names via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You will see all active domain names the moment you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require an EPP authentication code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain owner’s email, so if the one that you shared originally isn’t valid any longer, you can change it with a few mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you’ve got a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain that you’d like to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code astonishingly easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your account and your domain names. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll notice an EPP symbol on the right side of your domain names, as long as their TLD extensions support transfers between domain registrars with such a code. All codes are sent automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to ensure that only the domain owner can see this info. If the current email address is not valid, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain straight away.
