If you want to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you will need to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and no one else can get it. You’ll have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they won’t be able to initiate the domain name transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Some registrar companies call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Web Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a web hosting account is extremely easy. You will not have to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can administer both your domain names and your shared web hosting account from one single location – our in-house created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you just need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP icon, which will be situated on the right-hand side of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email address right away. If you want to update the email, you can do it from the same section of the Control Panel with only several mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you want to transfer any domain name that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account away from us, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains will be displayed in a separate section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To obtain the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP sign, which will be to the right of any domain whose extension supports transfers with a transfer authorization code. Our system will send the code to the registrant’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can change this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer code. The change will propagate instantly, so you do not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS web sites.
