If you decide to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few safety steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authorization code from the current registrar – as long as you are the registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's mailbox and no one else can obtain it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain domain registrars refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through our company under a shared website hosting account is really easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domain names and your web hosting account from the very same location – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you just have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will send the code to the domain registrant’s email address instantly. In case you want to update the email, you can do it from the very same section of the Control Panel with just a few clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just a click of the mouse, in case you decide to move it to another registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the specific extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that contains the code will be sent to the registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can edit the latter via the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS database is not valid. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
