If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar to another, you will have to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authentication code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's email account and nobody else can see it. You have to give this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional security measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be altered regularly. Certain registrar companies call this code an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Web Hosting

You can obtain the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain that you have registered with our company with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from the very same Hepsia Control Panel that you will use to administer your shared web hosting account. Once you visit the Registered Domains section, you’ll see all your domains conveniently listed in alphabetical order. In case a particular extension supports transfers between registrar companies with an EPP transfer code, you will notice an EPP button on the right side of the respective domain. If you click on that button, the code will be emailed to the email address associated with the Registrant contact for the domain in question. If you want, you can modify the contact info, including the email address, without needing to leave this Control Panel section, in case the current email address isn’t valid anymore.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one mouse click, in case you decide to transfer it to another registrar. All it takes to do that is to log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be available only if the respective top-level domain name extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Within 60 seconds, an email message that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details isn’t a valid one. As the update will propagate without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code directly after that.
