If you want to transfer a domain from one domain name registrar to another, you will need to go through several safety procedures. One of them is getting a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s email account and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to begin the domain transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of numbers or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily miswritten, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain domain name registrars call this code a domain password, an Auth key or a domain secret as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you have a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP transfer code is remarkably easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panels, as you can manage all your domain names via the exact same Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and on the right side of the domains whose extensions require a code in order to be transferred away, you’ll see a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to get the code is to click on the icon. The code is always sent to the domain registrant’s email address, so in case the one that you shared at first is not valid anymore, you can update it with a few mouse clicks from the same section.

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 get its EPP transfer authorization code with just one single mouse click, in case you decide to move it to another domain registrar. All it takes to accomplish that is to log into your Hepsia hosting Control Panel, to go to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be next to the domain. Of course, such a button will be there 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 owner’s email account associated with that domain. You can modify the latter through the very same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that’s presently listed in the WHOIS archives is not a valid one. As the update will take effect without delay, you can request the EPP code immediately after that.
