If you wish to transfer a domain name from one domain registrar to another, you will have to go through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current domain registrar – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email and nobody else can see it. You will have to give this code to the new registrar, otherwise they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain secret, a domain password or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you have a domain name registered through our company and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is incredibly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domain names through the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared hosting account. You will see all existing domain names once you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will find a small EPP icon. All it takes to obtain this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the registrant’s email account, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid any longer, you can modify it with a couple of clicks from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you wish to transfer any domain that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with several clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domain names are shown in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will permit you to use separate features. To obtain the transfer code, you only need to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain name whose extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will email the code to the domain name owner’s email, which is presently listed in the domain name’s WHOIS record. If you want, you can modify this email from the very same section of the Control Panel before requesting the transfer authorization code. The change will propagate straight away, so you won’t need to wait for the new email to be displayed on WHOIS lookup websites.
