If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through our company and you have a cloud web hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is unbelievably easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different Control Panel tools, since you can administer all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domains whose extensions require an EPP transfer code in order to be transferred, you’ll find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially isn’t valid anymore, you can update it with several mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain name registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a separate section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use different functions. To get the transfer code, you simply need to click the EPP symbol, which will be on the right-hand side of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can change this email from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer authorization code. The update will take effect instantly, so you will not have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS web sites.
