If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the present registrar – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed 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 have a Linux cloud website hosting service, you’ve registered a domain with our company and you’d like to transfer it away from us, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with no more than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company shown alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you will notice a tiny EPP icon for all top-level domain name extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking the icon will email the code to the domain owner’s email address momentarily. In the very same section you can also see and eventually update the email address, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer code with only one click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to sign into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific generic or country-code top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s mailbox associated with that domain. You can edit the latter through the very same Control Panel section – if the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS details is not valid. Since the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
