If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through several security procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered on a regular basis. Some registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Website Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a cloud website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authentication code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to sign in and out of different tools, since you can manage all your domains via the same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get that code is to click the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you shared initially is no longer valid, you can modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can effortlessly obtain the transfer code for any domain registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you decide to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to switch between different platforms. All you will have to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button for the domain name that you want to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain name registrant’s email listed in the domain’s WHOIS record, so if the email that is currently listed is out of date, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse without even leaving the Control Panel’s domain management section.
