If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you’ll have to go through several security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can obtain it. You have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting, you’ve registered a domain name with our company and you would like to transfer it, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a few mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and navigate to the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through our company displayed alphabetically. Next to each domain name, you’ll see a mini EPP icon for all Top-Level Domain extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the EPP code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In the very same section you can also find and eventually modify the email, if the one there isn’t 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 will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other domain name registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the given Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. Since the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
