If you’d like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you’ll need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is getting a unique EPP code from the current domain registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email and no one else can get it. You need to provide this code to the new registrar company, or else they won’t be able to initiate 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 and paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be altered regularly. Some domain registrars call this code an Auth key, a domain password or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authentication code for any domain registered through our company under a hosting account is exceptionally easy. You will not have to log in and out of different platforms, as you can administer both your domains and your shared web hosting account from the exact same location – our custom-created Hepsia Control Panel. To get the transfer code for any domain, you just have to go to the Registered Domains section and to click the small EPP logo, 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 owner’s email address momentarily. In case you’d like to update the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with just several clicks of the mouse.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain its EPP transfer code with only a click, in case you decide to move it to a different registrar company. All it takes to achieve that is to sign in to your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, this button will be there only if the respective generic or country-code TLD extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email that includes the EPP code will be sent to the domain name owner’s email address associated with that domain name. You can update the latter through the very same Control Panel section – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS archives isn’t a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP transfer code right after that.
