If you’d like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of 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 security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it away, you can obtain its EPP authentication code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and visit the Registered Domains section, you will see all the domains that you have registered through us listed in alphabetical order. To the right of each domain name, you will notice a small EPP icon for all TLD extensions that require an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrars. Clicking the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email instantly. In the exact same section you can also see and eventually modify the email address, if the one there isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can easily get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be done through the very same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you won’t have to switch between different admin consoles. All you need to do is go to the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button for the domain name that you wish to transfer, as long as its TLD extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without the need to leave the domain management section of the Control Panel.
