If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to go through a few security procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you have a Linux cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you want to transfer it, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than several clicks. When you log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you’ve registered with our company listed in alphabetical order. On the right-hand side of each domain, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that require a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking the icon will send the EPP code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. In the exact same section you can also find and eventually update the email address, if the one there isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you decide to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another company, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domains will be listed in an independent section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you just have to click on the EPP button, which will be next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you wish, you can edit this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The update will take effect immediately, so you will not need to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS lookup sites.
