If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and no one else can see it. You need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset regularly. Some domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name that you’ve registered with us with only a few clicks from the exact same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your cloud website hosting account. As soon as you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. If a certain extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If needed, you can edit the contact details, including the email address, without having to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be accomplished through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you won’t have to go through different Control Panel tools. 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’d like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the email that is currently listed is obsolete, you can edit it with several mouse clicks without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
