If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the current domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email address and nobody else can obtain it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to initiate the transfer process. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the right code. As an extra security measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be reset on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain secret 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 have registered through our company with only several mouse clicks from the same Hepsia Control Panel that you’ll use to manage your shared website hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll find all your domain names neatly listed in alphabetical order. If a certain TLD extension supports transfers between registrars with an EPP code, you’ll see an EPP button next to the given domain name. If you click that button, the code will be sent to the email associated with the Registrant contact for the given domain dame. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email, without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel, if the current email isn’t valid any longer.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you have a semi-dedicated server account with us and you have registered a domain that you want to transfer, you can get the EPP transfer authorization code extremely easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you’ll administer both your domain names and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you’ll find an EPP logo on the right side of your domain names, provided that their extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email to ensure that only the owner of the domain can obtain this information. If the currently entered address is no longer valid, you can change it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this section of the Control Panel. The update is instantaneous, so you will be able to request the EPP code for the given domain name straight away.
