If you want to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a cloud website hosting account is surprisingly easy. You will not have to sign in and out of different admin interfaces, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from a single location – our in-house created Hepsia Control Panel. To obtain the transfer code for any domain name, you only have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the mini EPP sign, which will be located next to any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the domain name registrant’s email address instantly. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to obtain its EPP transfer authentication code with only one click, in case you decide to move it to some other registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective generic or country-code domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain owner’s email address associated with that domain. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS register isn’t valid. Since the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
