If you’d like to transfer a domain name from one domain name registrar to another, you’ll need to pass through a few safety procedures. One of them is obtaining a special EPP code from the current registrar company – on the condition that you are the domain registrant, since the code is emailed to the domain owner’s mailbox and nobody else can get it. You will have to provide this code to the new registrar company, otherwise they won’t be able to start the domain transfer procedure. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may contain numbers or special characters such as dots or commas, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional protection measure, the transfer authorization code for a domain may be changed on a regular basis. Certain companies refer to this code as a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

In case you have a domain registered through us and you’ve got a website hosting account with us, obtaining its EPP authorization code is exceptionally easy. You won’t have to log in and out of different interfaces, since you can administer all your domains via the same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to administer your hosting account. You will see all registered domain names as soon as you log in and to the right 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 the icon. The code is always emailed to the domain registrant’s mailbox, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can edit it with a few clicks of the mouse from the same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you wish to transfer any domain that is registered under a semi-dedicated server account to another domain registrar, you can get its EPP transfer authorization code with a few clicks from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. All registered domains are listed in a different Control Panel section. Quick-access buttons will allow you to use different functions. To get the EPP transfer code, you only have to click the EPP button, which will be to the right of any domain whose TLD extension supports transfers with an authorization code. Our system will send the code to the domain name registrant’s email address, which is presently listed in the domain’s WHOIS record. If needed, you can modify this email address from the same Control Panel section before requesting the transfer code. The change will take effect immediately, so you will not have to wait for the new email address to show up on WHOIS sites.
