If you want to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the present registrar company – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud hosting service, you’ve registered a domain with us and you want to transfer it away, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of clicks of the mouse. When you log in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you’ve registered with us displayed alphabetically. On the right-hand side of each domain name, you’ll notice a tiny EPP icon for all generic and country-code Top-Level Domain extensions that need an EPP code in order to be transferred between registrar companies. Clicking on the icon will email the EPP code to the domain name registrant’s email right away. In the same section you can also see and ultimately change the email address, if the one there is no longer valid.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer authorization code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you want to transfer it. This can be achieved through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different platforms. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button for the domain that you wish to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name owner’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is out of date, you can change it with a few clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
