If you would like to transfer a domain from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through several security steps. One of them is obtaining a unique EPP authorization code from the present domain name registrar – as long as you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the owner's email and no one else can see it. You’ll need to provide this code to the new domain registrar, otherwise they will not be able to initiate the domain name transfer procedure. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special characters such as commas or dots, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy & paste the correct code. As an extra protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain name may be changed regularly. Some companies refer to this code as a domain password, a domain secret or an Auth key as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a shared website hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is stunningly easy. You won’t need to log in and out of different Control Panels, since you can manage all your domains via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your web hosting account. You’ll see all registered domains the moment you log in and to the right of the domains whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred, you will find a mini EPP icon. All it takes to get this code is to click on the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain name registrant’s email account, so if the one that you gave at first isn’t valid any longer, you can update it with a couple of clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company and you’ve registered a domain name that you’d like to transfer, you can obtain the EPP transfer code very easy through the Hepsia Control Panel, via which you will administer both your domains and your account. If you go to the Registered Domains section, you will find an EPP symbol to the right of your domain names, on the condition that their TLD extensions support transfers between registrars with such a code. All codes are emailed automatically by our system to the registrant’s email address to make sure that only the domain owner can see this info. If the currently entered email address isn’t valid anymore, you can modify it with a few clicks of the mouse without needing to leave this Control Panel section. The change is instant, so you’ll be able to request the EPP code for the specific domain name right away.
