If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will have to go through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email address and no one else can get it. You need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is unbelievably easy. You will not have to switch between different platforms, as you can manage all your domains through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domains once you sign in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so if the one that you gave originally is no longer valid, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want 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 clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a different section. Quick-access controls will allow you to use separate functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you simply have to click on the EPP button, which will be next to 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 currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the exact same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The update will take effect instantaneously, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to be updated on WHOIS web sites.
