If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to start the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

If you’ve got a domain registered through our company and you’ve got a web hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP code is amazingly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different tools, as you can administer all your domain names through the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your shared web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domain names the moment you log in and to the right of the domain names whose extensions require an EPP authorization code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain that code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name owner’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid anymore, you can update it with several clicks of the mouse from the very same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can swiftly obtain the transfer code for any domain name registered under a semi-dedicated server account if you wish to transfer it. This can be done through the same Control Panel, via which you manage your account, so you will not have to sign in and out of different interfaces. All you will need to do is go to the Control Panel’s domain management section and click on the EPP button associated with the domain name that you would like to transfer, on the condition that its extension supports transfers with such a code. Our system sends all codes automatically to the domain registrant’s email listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record, so if the email address that is currently entered is outdated, you can modify it with a few mouse clicks without having to leave the Control Panel’s domain management section.
