If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one company to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You’ll need to give this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may include numbers 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 protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from the same location – our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP symbol, which will be situated next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantaneously. In case you would like to edit the email, you can do it from the very same section of the hosting Control Panel with just several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authentication code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll manage both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP logo next to your domains, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrar companies with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain name owner can receive this information. If the current email is no longer valid, you can change it with a couple of clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The change is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the particular domain straight away.
