If you decide to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll need to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is getting a unique EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a cloud website hosting, you’ve registered a domain name through our company and you want to transfer it away from us, you can get its EPP transfer code with less than a couple of mouse clicks. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel and go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all the domains that you have registered with our company listed alphabetically. Next to each domain, you’ll see a small EPP icon for all domain name extensions that need a code in order to be transferred between domain name registrars. Clicking on the icon will send the code to the domain owner’s email address straight away. In the same section you can also find and ultimately modify the email, if the one there is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can effortlessly get the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it away. This can be accomplished through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to log in and out of different interfaces. All you will need to do is visit the domain management section of the Control Panel and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, provided that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain owner’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently listed is outdated, you can modify it with a couple of clicks without needing to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
