If you would like to transfer a domain from one domain registrar to another, you’ll have to pass through a couple of safety steps. One of them is obtaining a special EPP authorization code from the current domain name registrar – provided that you are the domain registrant, since the code is sent to the owner's mailbox and no one else can see it. You will need to give this code to the new domain name registrar, or else they will not be able to begin the domain transfer. The EPP authentication codes are case-sensitive and may comprise of digits or special symbols such as dots or commas, which can be easily mistyped, so make sure you copy and paste the correct code. As an additional security measure, the transfer code for a domain may be altered on a regular basis. Certain registrar companies call this code a domain secret, an Auth key or a domain password as well.

EPP Transfer Protection in Shared Hosting

If you’ve got a domain name registered through us and you’ve got a shared hosting account with us, getting its EPP authorization code is very easy. You won’t have to sign in and out of different admin dashboards, as you can manage all your domain names via the very same Hepsia Control Panel, which is used to manage your shared web hosting account. You will see all registered domain names the moment you log in and next to the domain names whose extensions require an EPP code in order to be transferred away, you will find a tiny EPP icon. All it takes to obtain the code is to click the icon. The code is always sent to the domain name owner’s email, so in case the one that you gave initially is not valid any longer, you can change it with several clicks of the mouse from the exact same section.

EPP Transfer Protection in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a domain name under a semi-dedicated server account with us, you’ll be able to get its EPP transfer authorization code with only one mouse click, if you decide to transfer it to some other registrar company. All it takes to do that is to log into your Hepsia Control Panel, to navigate to the Registered Domains section and to click on the EPP button, which will be on the right-hand side of the domain. Of course, such a button will be available only if the specific generic or country-code Top-Level Domain extension supports transfers with an EPP transfer code. Within a minute, an email message that includes the code will be sent to the domain owner’s email account associated with that domain name. You can modify the latter through the same Control Panel section – if the one that is presently listed in the WHOIS details is not a valid one. As the change will propagate without any delays, you can request the EPP code directly after that.
