If you would like to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can obtain it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be changed regularly. Some registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud website hosting account is incredibly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared hosting account from the very same location – our in-house developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be situated to the right of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In case you wish to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with just a couple of clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you would like to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in a different section of the Control Panel. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply need to click on the EPP logo, which will be to the right of any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email address from the very same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate momentarily, so you won’t need to wait for the new email address to be displayed on WHOIS web sites.
