If you wish to transfer a domain name from one registrar company to another, you will need to go through a couple of security steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authentication code from the current registrar company – provided that you are the registrant, since the code is sent to the domain owner’s email address and nobody else can get it. You have to provide this code to the new registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain name transfer process. The EPP authorization codes are case-sensitive and may include digits or special symbols such as commas or dots, which can be easily misentered, so make sure you copy/paste the correct code. As an extra safety measure, the transfer code for a domain name may be changed on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies refer to this code as an Auth key, a domain secret or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Website Hosting

Getting the EPP transfer code for any domain registered through our company under a website hosting account is extremely easy. You will not need to log in and out of different admin panels, as you can administer both your domains and your web hosting account from the very same place – our custom-created Hepsia hosting Control Panel. To obtain the EPP transfer code for any domain name, you simply have to visit the Registered Domains section and to click the mini EPP sign, which will be located on the right-hand side of each domain name whose extension supports transfers with an EPP code. Our system will email the code to the registrant’s email address straight away. If you’d like to modify the email, you can do it from the same section of the hosting Control Panel with only a couple of mouse clicks.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authentication code with just one click of the mouse, if you decide to move it to some other registrar. All it takes to achieve that is to log into 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 available only if the respective domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within one minute, an email message that contains the EPP code will be sent to the domain name registrant’s email account associated with that domain. You can change the latter via the exact same section of the Control Panel – in case the one that is currently listed in the WHOIS database is not a valid one. As the update will propagate without any delay, you can request the EPP transfer code immediately after that.
