If you’d like to transfer a domain from one company to another, you will have to go through a few security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP code from the current domain name registrar – on the condition that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can obtain it. You’ll have to give this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. 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 right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Some domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

You can get the EPP transfer code for any domain name that you’ve registered through us with just several clicks of the mouse from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to administer your shared website hosting account. Once you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently shown in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between domain name registrars with an EPP transfer code, you will see an EPP button next to the respective domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If needed, you can edit the contact information, including the email, without the need to leave this Control Panel section, if the current email is not valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with only a click, if you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to do that is to sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be to the right of the domain name. Of course, such a button will be available only if the respective Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within sixty seconds, an email that includes the code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can edit the latter through the exact same Control Panel section – if the one that’s currently listed in the WHOIS register is not valid. Since the change will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP code right after that.
