If you decide to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the present domain registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You will have to give this code to the new domain registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy/paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Cloud Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain name registered through us under a cloud hosting account is extremely easy. You won’t need to switch between different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domains and your shared hosting account from one and the same location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the tiny EPP logo, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address momentarily. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.

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 wish to transfer it away. This can be achieved through the exact same Control Panel, via which you administer your account, so you will not have to go through different admin panels. All you will need to do is visit the Control Panel’s domain management section and click the EPP button associated with the domain name that you’d like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so in case the address that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with several clicks of the mouse without even leaving the domain management section of the Control Panel.
