If you wish to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need to go 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 registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new domain name registrar, otherwise they won’t be able to start the transfer. The EPP codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy and paste the right code. As an additional safety measure, the transfer code for a domain may be reset regularly. Some registrars call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Hosting

Obtaining the EPP transfer authorization code for any domain name registered through us under a hosting account is remarkably easy. You will not have to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can manage both your domains and your shared hosting account from one place – our custom-developed Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To get the EPP transfer code for any domain, you only need to visit the Registered Domains section and to click on the small EPP logo, which will be located next to each domain name whose extension supports transfers with a code. Our system will send the code to the domain name owner’s email instantly. In case you’d like to change the email, you can do it from the exact same section of the Control Panel with only a few mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you decide to transfer any domain name that’s registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another registrar, you can obtain its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks of the mouse from the Hepsia Control Panel. All registered domain names will be shown in an independent Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use separate features. To get the transfer code, you just have to click the EPP symbol, which will be next to any domain name whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain owner’s email address, which is currently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can update this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the EPP transfer authorization code. The change will take effect immediately, so you won’t have to wait for the new email to be shown on WHOIS sites.
